There are a number of misconceptions about me. For example, the misconception that I like to shop. I don’t. Or the misconception that I’m an extrovert (because, you know, I like to talk). I’m not. But the most common misconception of all is the very wrong expectation that I am a food snob.

I am so not a food snob it’s not even funny.

People seem to assume that because I write a food blog, well I must be a food snob right? WRONG. I think there are “foodies” out there who are snobby and who only let the best of the best ingredients pass their gnarly teeth. And then there are “foodies” who well, we just like to eat. If it tastes good, I like it. I mean, I actually like a McDonalds cheeseburger, so sue me.

Anyway, Saturday. Shopping in Sandton City, J’burg. Hectic. Hungry. Want junk food.

We saw a Wimpy (basically a McDonalds with table service and steak on the menu) and I ordered a cheeseburger which came with free toppings (I had onion rings). The pattie was a touch well done but aside from that, I enjoyed by burger thankyouverymuch.

My coke float was not as great, made with soft serve and not real ice cream. But heck, I drank it all anyway.

Don’t judge me for loving all food unconditionally.
